This is an ambient mix of the 14th chapter of John from the World English Bible. The scripture is read by Dolores Thompson and Karsten Klemme. The scripture reading is slower than most audio books, making it easier to listen along, and the text is from the World English Bible, a modern English translation that is in the public domain. The chants are from the musicasacra.com audio library. I'm releasing this under a CC0 1.0 Universal license. The chants as well as the scripture reading were also released in a public domain/Creative Commons no restrictions license. The soundscape that serves as the foundation of the music is a recording of the Montrose power plant in Missouri.

John Chapter 14: World English Bible-
"14:1 "Don't let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe
also in me. 14:2 In my Father's house are many homes. If it weren't
so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.
14:3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will
receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also. 14:4
Where I go, you know, and you know the way."
14:5 Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going.
How can we know the way?"
14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No
one comes to the Father, except through me. 14:7 If you had known me,
you would have known my Father also. From now on, you know him, and
have seen him."
14:8 Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will
be enough for us."
14:9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you such a long time,
and do you not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father.
How do you say, 'Show us the Father?' 14:10 Don't you believe that I
am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I tell you, I
speak not from myself; but the Father who lives in me does his works.
14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or
else believe me for the very works' sake. 14:12 Most certainly I tell
you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and
he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.
14:13 Whatever you will ask in my name, that will I do, that the
Father may be glorified in the Son. 14:14 If you will ask anything in
my name, I will do it. 14:15 If you love me, keep my commandments.
14:16 I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another
48Counselor,48 that he may be with you forever,--14:17 the
Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him,
neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in
you. 14:18 I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you. 14:19
Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more; but you will see
me. Because I live, you will live also. 14:20 In that day you will
know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 14:21 One
who has my commandments, and keeps them, that person is one who loves
me. One who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him,
and will reveal myself to him."
14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, what has happened
that you are about to reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?"
14:23 Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my
word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our
home with him. 14:24 He who doesn't love me doesn't keep my words.
The word which you hear isn't mine, but the Father's who sent me.
14:25 I have said these things to you, while still living with you.
14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send
in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all
that I said to you. 14:27 Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to
you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Don't let your heart be
troubled, neither let it be fearful. 14:28 You heard how I told you,
'I go away, and I come to you.' If you loved me, you would have
rejoiced, because I said 'I am going to my Father;' for the Father is
greater than I. 14:29 Now I have told you before it happens so that,
when it happens, you may believe. 14:30 I will no more speak much
with you, for the prince of the world comes, and he has nothing in me.
14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the
Father commanded me, even so I do. Arise, let us go from here."
